That is how David Silva and pay per head sportsbooks see it, as City move into the last game of the season on Sunday at the Etihad Stadium against West Ham, with hopes to avoid any last-day trouble.
In comparison to Liverpool, City only need a point for them to be crowned champions because of their superior goal difference, and price per head services can’t wait to see if they’ll make it.
Pay per head sportsbooks know that the players will need to stay calm, and the Chilean will be ready to give his men some wise words on how to keep a cool head – a trait that Silva believes was key during Pellegrini’s first season in charge of the club.
“His calmness has been obvious,” Silva told the club’s official website.
“He’s added that to the whole club. And it really helps us at difficult moments.
“It’s nice to have that calm attitude around you when things get tough.”
On the manager’s overall impact since he took the place of Roberto Mancini, Silva added: “He’s made it a happy place.
And pay per head sportsbooks also saw how much he helped the club, and can fully agree with the player.
“He’s brought a joy and happiness – also to our style of play. We are attack-minded and we score lots of goals.
“He’s made us competitive in every competition. We’ve gone further in them this season. He’s given us that extra push and taken us one step further.
“Having Manuel here has helped me personally, too. It’s been really good for me. My style of play is more suited to an attacking style.
